Hiking Inn to Inn
We are planning to walk a bit in Northern CA in mid-October this fall. Right now I would love to walk the Marin Coast and then finish off with the two day Mendocino walk. The problem I can foresee is that I'm not sure how to get to Albion from Olema to connect the two walks. Google maps tells me it's a 2 1/2 hour drive but a 20+ hour bus ride. We are flying in from Canada so we won't have a car. A 2 1/2 hour uber ride sounds expensive (if that's even an option). Is anyone familiar with the area to suggest a plan?
Thanks in advance!
It sounds like you have a great adventure in mind. I don't think there is a quick public transportation option for getting from Olema to Albion. You could take the bus from Olema to San Rafael. Then it looks like an 8 hour bus ride to Mendocino. There is a regular bus that goes from Mendocino to Albion. Another option would be to rent a car.
The walkabout from San Francisco to Half Moon Bay is lovely. You might want to consider returning to SF from Olema by bus and then heading south.
Thanks for that advice. We walked the San Francisco to Half Moon Bay last spring and LOVED it, otherwise we would take your suggestion. But I think your idea of a bus from Olema to San Rafael and then a car rental from there might be our best option.
We're looking forward to exploring more of the California coast!
